As an ICU nurse we must always strive to prevent central line infections. NPSG.07.04.01 –Use proven guidelines to prevent infection of the blood from central lines is one of those safety goals. In my hospital we use swab caps, bio-patches to help with this. I also included a sample paper she provided us. I copied the specific criteria my professor posted.
Choose one safety goal that you wish to implement. Describe one way to improve one of the 2018 Patient Safety Goals in your work area- use Lewin’s Theory of Change.
